ISCO launched to combat organised crime

The International Container Security Organisation, a new not-for-profit organisation, has been set up in Brussels to help combat terrorism and organised crime, in the international container freight industry.

The ISCO will develop and publish global standards for container security devices and related systems, with some of the world’s leading companies.

Dr Christoph Seidelmann, the vice-president of the Bureau International des Containers (BIC) in Paris, and new president of ICSO, said: “The ICSO team will begin today to develop and deliver standards contributing to a secure transport system.

“Just as standards contributed to make today’s freight container transport system efficient, safe, and successful; so will standards for new and emerging technologies contribute to the security of containers and goods in-transit.”
